Paper Abstract

PMD compensation is one of the requirements for deployment of 40 Gbit/s systems. In this paper, we discuss several important considerations in the design of PMD compensators. Issues regarding PMD-induced distortion detection, feedback and control algorithms in the presence of local minima, cost/performance tradeoffs, and interaction between PMD and other degrading effects (such as chromatic dispersion, PDL, and fiber nonlinearities) are among the topics that will be presented.
